Writing at my age is a necessity, otherwise I'll find somebody writing about me after the fact. Not good.


Background Information

I've been writing now for eighteen years. Short stories, a couple of self-help books, a memoir, (Soon my family will have to read it in self-defense.) Three novels now with two published, Ordered Solutions-business intrigue- published by Publish America, 2005. and Raw Talent w/ Comfort Publishing, a small publisher in Concord, NC. I found out the hard way about a small segment of the publishing industry (with reference to PubAmer).. Fortunately I only go to one goat-roping per career. It's just another experience to write about. I've done Numerous essays and political articles as in my pages here. The biggest influence has been in learning how old-friends and family would react to the fact I'm writing. It was a little scary at first, since I was less sure of myself, and they were scared to death I might suck and they wouldn't know how to tell me. Then, when they found out I usually knew before they did how bad something I'd written was, it made it easier for them to laugh their butts off. It means they've had a good chance to see my progress and now they are my best critics. Now that the writing is starting to pay off tells me I am learning a little each day. Advice: "Don't give up on yourself as long as you believe in what you're doing." Never let someone's critical opinion of your work sway your dedication to it. Take what's useful, use it, and remain positive. There are people out there who are technically good at what they do, but they can be toxic when they attempt to go beyond their limits of expertise.

Additional Information

I finished my third novel, Raw Talent, August of 2009 and it was published in 2010. the sales have been relatively mediocreb but a surprise none the less since it has gotten only a small amount of publicity in spite of the great reviews. It is the story of a young Hispanic man who becomes a world class golfer, and the fight he has just to demonstrate his gift. It is also the story of people, ordinary, working, Mexican Americans, some good and a few not so much. It was the first story I've begun where I sat down and had a hundred pages done before I realized I was actually writing. No. I wasn't high, not on dope anyway, I was just wrapped up in the story.
